About the Author

Victoria Hydes Victoria Hydes

My name is Victoria Hydes and I am a journalism graduate from the University of Sunderland. I love to write pretty much anything, and am also creative in other ways. I love craft and photography and have an interest in fashion. One of my main ambitions in life is to write a successful novel. Of course, this isn’t going to happen overnight so for now I’m volunteering as editor of a Lincolnshire magazine called Voxx and am also seeking a paid job, as I’m sure many others around the country are right now. Where will I end up? Who knows, but for now I’ll just continue to write and hope for the best!
